Happiest Time of the Year
It is the HAPPIEST time of the year! There is so much about the holiday season that makes me joyful. Right after Thanksgiving (or if I’m honest, sometimes even before that!) Christmas carols are booming and the decorating has begun.
While I would like to say that the stockings and ornaments are “hung with care”, that was definitely a challenge when my children were younger! But trimming the tree, drinking hot cocoa, and hanging the garland with family is an awesome time to bond with family traditions.
I love this season! To me, there is nothing better than the smell of the fresh cut Christmas tree, the warmth of the fire, the smell of cider, the twinkling lights and the best part… the giving! My favorite part is thinking about the variety of people that make an impact on my life in some way and finding a creative way to show them I care. It also makes me so HAPPY to use my creativity to come up with unique gift ideas.
Christmas Gifts and Cards
I know that I appreciate when I receive thoughtful gifts that have taken the time to create or put together. That’s why we hold onto all of our kids’ holiday crafts and artwork, right?! Because we know how much thought, effort, and love went into creating something special for us. I find my holiday joy in putting a personal touch on gifts or creating something new. Anything that they can enjoy and feel special.
I try to stay organized during the holidays and not fall too far behind. I tend to start planning, buying, or creating gifts early. And although I put so much focus on the gift giving I almost always forget something! It is a challenge keeping everything straight. There are parties, Santa visits, Christmas trains, and while its all are great to make memories, there is a A LOT.
Christmas Cards For Teachers and Friends
Most recently, I forgot the cards for my children’s teachers even though we had their gifts. So, what’s a girl to do? I combined some of my favorite things- crafting, Christmas, and my kids! Why not have them show they care by creating something personal and festive for their teachers?
I wanted something that was unique and easy enough for little fingers to create. So, I created this adorable pop up tree card. I have always loved the excitement of a pop-up card. This pop up Christmas tree will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit!
3D Chrsitmas Cards
The accordion fold of the tree on green paper is easy enough for the youngest of children to do. The folding pattern will strengthen their fine motor skills. This pop up Christmas tree card is super easy and the dimensional tree in the center makes an impact!
Of course, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t add more color! The green paper pops on the white background, and then I used colorful paper around the page like snow. In no time at all, we found all of the materials in our crafting supplies. We were able to create a colorful and creative holiday card.
While their teachers may not keep it forever like I would, I know that they will appreciate the time and effort that my children put into creating something special. These teachers are special and make a daily impact on their life. And while you may not have forgotten cards like I have, you now have this Pop-up Christmas Tree Craft to help keep your little busy while you create more memories this holiday season! It is also a great gift for loved ones.
Of course, if you just do not have time to craft a card, you can print a free Christmas card too! Have fun!
